The Uttar Pradesh (UP) government has come hard at the CAA protestors. U.P’s Sambhal district administration has issued notices to 11 CAA and NRC protestors. As per notice each of the 11 protestors would have to sign a personal bond of Rs 50 lakh, stating that peace would be maintained.
The incident has come to notice from Sambhal’s Nakhasa police station area. Notices have been sent under Section 111 of CrPC (magistrate order against any person who is likely to commit a breach of peace) on the basis of a report by local police.
“The 11 persons have been told in the notices that police suspect that they may get involved in violence and therefore a personal bond of Rs 50 lakh and two sureties for the same amount should be taken from each of them,” said sub-divisional magistrate, Nakhasa, Rajesh Kumar.
Kumar further said that such notices would also be issued to 24 more people.
